Odd fit of pdc jeans

An interesting thing happened to me this weekend: I bought my wife a pair of clearance-priced Paper Denim & Cloth jeans in size 28. (She normally takes a 27, but I figured that 28 was good enough for the price.) The style is 2-MOD RIGID; it's a totally dark, unwashed denim with bright yellow stitching that looks like it will break in very nicely once worn a bit. Anyway, here's the interesting bit: the jeans are several sizes too large on her, but fit me (albeit quite tightly - definitely not as much room in the crotch as I would like). I normally take a 31 in the men's GTO cut. What the heck is up with this? How on earth can I fit into a size 28 anything, let alone women's size 28 jeans?

A size 28 is about a size 6-8, and Paper Denim cuts large, so it's probably more like a woman's 8-10.
Are you sure about that? My wife takes a 27 in both Seven and Paper, and a size 4 or 6 - not crazy, oversized Gap clothes either - in bottoms sized that way. Her size 27 TRU cut Paper Denim jeans I can't even get my leg into.

Have you considered the possibility that it might just be mislabeled? Why don't you just exchange it for the right size.
